Watching baby chicks hatch makes me cry

We used food colouring gel and rubber bands to make these simple eggs.

Last week I watched as a tiny, bedraggled (and moist) little chick pushed its way determinedly out of its egg. I’ve never actually seen a chick hatch in real life. It was intensely moving.

I was so relieved when one of the kinder teachers came over to me and reassured me that so exhausted are they from fighting their way out that these fragile but independent newborns close their eyes and have a big sleep straight after hatching. I’d had my fingers poised over my phone to dial 000.

Have a safe and happy Easter lovely readers.
